Rowley President, Lloyd’s Register Asia

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Lloyd’s Register has appointed John Rowley as its new President for Lloyd’s Register Asia. He succeeds John Stansfeld who has returned to London to drive the implementation of the organization’s new Group strategy.
Rowley joins the Group after a 14-year career with Ecolab Inc, a Fortune 500 multi-national corporation operating in the industrial chemicals sector, where he most recently held the position of Vice-President and Managing Director for Asia.

As President for Lloyd’s Register Asia, Rowley will be responsible for a rapidly expanding workforce of almost 2,000 people across a region that stretches from China and Japan to Australia and west to the Indian subcontinent. His remit will include operational responsibility for the Group’s five divisions in Asia: Marine, Management Systems, Chemicals & Power, Oil & Gas and Transportation.
In taking the helm at Lloyd’s Register Asia, Rowley inherits a part of the Group that has seen average annual revenue growth exceed 20% since 2006.
Rowley joined Ecolab Inc in 1995, following short careers in the British Army and water management. He has a degree in biotechnology from the University of Reading in the UK.
He has lived in the Asia-Pacific region for the past 18 years, during which time he held executive leadership roles in Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Australia. 
Rowley, whose appointment becomes effective on May 25, will be based in Hong Kong.
